Indiana 1-year-old ends up bruised and bloody at day care

Published

on

An Indiana family is looking for answers after their 1-year-old son came home from daycare bruised and bloody, reports the Associated Press.

The boy, Jesse Griffin, was dropped off by his mother, Tiffany Griffin, on Monday morning. She got a call a few hours later telling her to come get her son. She found the boy scratched and bloody, and became so angry that she punched a day care worker. She then took her son to the hospital.

The day care owner said that a 2-year-old girl was the apparent assailant, and that a worker found her with blood on her hands.

Tiffany Griffin is not so sure. “How will a 2yr old manage to do this much damage alone?” she posted on Facebook.

Tiffany Griffin told the AP that the girl accused of the beating “was small and she didn’t look like she was the violent type.”

The girl’s mother was shown the photo and “started crying and said her baby wouldn’t do anything like that.”

The daycare owner said she has gotten “harassing phone calls” and was closed Tuesday. She told the AP she wasn’t sure when it will reopen.

This passage was deleted from the Declaration of Independence — here’s what it reveals about motivation for the American revolution

Published

on

With the publication of its 1619 Project, a sweeping review of the role slavery played in the formation of the United States’ politics, economy, and society, the New York Time Magazine has struck a powerful chord and triggered a fierce debate. Many conservative and right-wing figures, in particular, have been aggrieved by the project’s apparent aim: a deconstruction and revaluation of American founding myths.

In particular, writer Nikole Hannah-Jones provoked controversy when she asserted:

She noted that “10 of this nation’s first 12 presidents were enslavers,” undermining claims that the country was founded as a democracy. She also pointed out that the founders were themselves actively conflicted about the contradiction of slavery persisting in a country supposedly founded on freedom. Thomas Jefferson, she said, even included a passage in a draft of the Declaration of Independence that tried to claim that the institution “wasn’t the colonists’ fault,” instead placing the blame on King George.

Trump goes into full attack against another American company — Ford motors

Published

on

President Donald Trump went off on another Twitter rant Wednesday, taking aim at another American company.

"Henry Ford would be very disappointed if he saw his modern-day descendants wanting to build a much more expensive car, that is far less safe and doesn’t work as well, because execs don’t want to fight California regulators. Car companies should know that when this Administration’s alternative is no longer available, California will squeeze them to a point of business ruin. Only reason California is now talking to them is because the Feds are giving a far better alternative, which is much better for consumers!" Trump tweeted.

Rudy Giuliani sneaked off to meet Ukrainian officials in Madrid about Biden conspiracy theories: report

Published

on

On Wednesday, The New York Times reported that President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani secretly traveled to Madrid in recent weeks to meet with a top aide of new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to go fishing for dirt on Democrats.

One of the key focuses of Giuliani's phone calls and in-person meetings was to try to dig up evidence that former Vice President Joe Biden acted improperly to remove a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating an energy company his son was invested in — which has been broadly discredited as conspiracy theories. He also tried to hunt for proof that Ukrainian officials colluded with Democrats to hurt Trump's campaign in 2016, a claim which is not supported by evidence.
